Encouragement and Inspiration

Coming Up

🙋Just another message for our Pagoda Writers🏯

Dear Pagoda Writers and new attendees,

Our next gathering will be on Saturday, October 16th from 1 to 3 p.m. at Barnes and Noble on Broadcasting Road. They are so kind as to let us use the space by the large windows so come with your writings, poems, ideas and don't forget your pens too...🖊📖 !

I encourage you all to bring your favorite quote and the writer, poet, musician or other person who wrote could be a famous actor or a spiritual leader...whoever may have first inspired you in your life. If you have a brief piece to share we welcome that as well. We all have our own history and valuable thoughts to share so please don't hesitate to participate especially if you are a new member. We are a unique group of creative souls!

Please don't hesitate to call me if you have any questions...I prefer using my cell rather than checking my email but either one will do...just be sure to leave your phone number so I can get back to you if I miss your call.

Bring a friend and spread the word if you wish...all are welcome and I would appreciate an RSVP so I can make sure there is enough seating available.

It's a dinner/dance and tickets are available at Boscovs and the VA office on Cherry Street in Reading for $15.00 each. All are welcome!
